LeBron Leads NBA in Jersey Sales, Duh
LeBron James is still the king in the land of NBA jersey sales. Which shouldn't come as much surprise considering he's the reigning MVP and is sporting back-to-back rings.
The latest quarterly figures, which cover sales from Adidas and directly from NBAStore.com, show James leading the pack. That quarter includes sales from Black Friday and Cyber Monday, so, sorry to ruin the surprise, but, come next week, there might be a number 6 jersey under your tree.
Kobe Bryant, Kevin Durant and Carmelo Anthony follow LeBron in the two through four spots.
Dwyane Wade, meanwhile, held strong at number seven.
However, James' jersey is so popular he tells the Associated Press he recently saw someone wearing one during his honeymoon in Venice.
Reigning NBA MVP LeBron James was relaxing with his wife not long ago when he looked around and was stunned to see someone wearing his Miami Heat No. 6 jersey.
They were on their honeymoon in Venice.
"It's kind of crazy, honestly," James said. "There's a 'wow' factor."
Though, we doubt at this point he's shocked when he sees people wearing his jersey when he's out in Miami.
